London Honeymoon Weekend!

At last I have finally managed to write my blog about our London Weekend Honeymoon!

We had a wonderful time. Although we had grey skys, nothing could dampen our spirits as we enjoyed the first quality time alone together in 7 years!!!!

We got to London on the train, and found our gorgeous hotel on Russel Square. It was just like somthing out of a film! We spent the weekend enjoying the British Museum, The V&A Museum and Harrods. Most of all, we enjoyed our flight on the London Eye and Sister Act, at the Paladium!

Here I am, actaully on the London Eye (Palace of Westminster and Big Ben in the background) sporting my gorgeous swap item - a super bag from See the Woods! Thanks so much Leanne!

Champagne all round at the hotel, after a wonderful meal in a nearby restaurant...

Classic Londan view....

We generally spent the weekend soaking up culture, eating and enjoying life to the full. The memories will last a lifetime. It was fantastic!

With all those romantical memories, I thought about how lovely hand crafted items from the 'September Stars' might just keep the theme going, so here is a selection of my favourites...

One of mine to start with - African Green Jade Pendant on a woven cord. I know, not very romantic, but would have looked great with some of the outfits I took with me!

Yep, one of mine again, Geode Druzy Agate Earrings. These would have looked fantastic worn to the theatre to see Sister Act (which was absolutely fantastic!) I will have to make myself a pair - just incase the OH decides to take me to London again! I will probably have to wait another 7 years though!

What a perfect way to keep all my lovely photos, with a gorgeous personalised album by Dottie Designs. Her shop is full of the most gorgeous handcrafted albums and keepsakes. Please take a look by clicking on the photo.

I love this hand carved stamp from Skull and Cross Buns - it summs up our trip. Patriotic London and Love ahhh. There are loads of fantastic, unique stamps and other goodies in her shop, please click on the pic for a link to her shop.

This is so lovely! From the wonderful Leanne Woods Designs. She made the bag I have with me in the first photo too. I love her work. Top quality and beautiful fabrics. She has stunning bags, purses, brooches and so much more in her shop. Please take a moment to have a look. Just click on the photo for a link back to her shop.

This would be the perfect romantic momento of our trip. Beautiful Silver clay heart, created by Wellydog Designs. She has stunning, unique jewellery in her shop. All beautifully presented in cream gift boxes - please click on the photo to be taken to her shop.

This Stunning Shabby Chic Heart Suncatcher would give me an everlasting reminder of our special time away. Made by the very tallented Diomo Glass. Her shop is absolutely filled with beautiful glass creations. Everything from coasters to mobiles. I love all her designs and I am sure you will too. Please just click on the photo to get to her shop.

Last but not least, a lovely double heart Amazonite keyring from NOfkantsCurios - a prfect daily reminder of our honeymoon weekend! Natalie has the most wonderful collection of hand knitted bags, fossils, gem stone keyrings and so much more. You are sure to find a gift for someone in her shop. Please take a look by clicking on the photo for a link to the shop.

Well, we had a wonderful time. I don't think we will do it again for many years to come - but it was worth the 7 year wait!
